Windows Mobile 6.5
A version of this page is also available for
4/8/2010

The Object Exchange Protocol (OBEX) technology for Windows Mobile provides an efficient, compact binary protocol that enables a wide range of devices to exchange data spontaneously in a simple, efficient manner. This technology works over Bluetooth and Infrared Data Association (IrDA) protocols.

OBEX is primarily used as a push or pull application.

It performs a function that is similar to Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) but it does not require the resources that an HTTP server requires. This makes OBEX perfect for low-end devices with limited resources.
